Information Theory, Evolution, and the Origin of Life presents a timely
introduction to the use of information theory and coding theory in molecular
biology. The genetical information system, because it is linear and digital,
resembles the algorithmic language of computers. George Gamow pointed
out that the application of Shannon’s information theory breaks genetics and
molecular biology out of the descriptive mode into the quantitative mode,
and Dr. Yockey develops this theme, discussing how information theory and
coding theory can be applied to molecular biology....
Assume a policy with a $2 million premium that reimburses the policyholder when aggregate
losses for the calendar year exceed $10 million. Assume that the losses covered by the policy are
generally low severity/high frequency, with minimal catastrophe potential (i.e., the policy is
meant to cover mostly pricing risk, not large loss risk). Also assume that the expected losses are
$8 million, and that the expected losses normally occur evenly throughout the year.
After one quarter, losses would have to be 500% of expected for attachment to occur.
To the ladies of America is this little work, "THE LADIES' BOOK OF USEFUL INFORMATION,"
dedicated. It is a book written expressly for women. This book is full from cover to cover of useful and
necessary information for women. Never before has so much knowledge with which women should be
acquainted been printed in one book. It is a perfect storehouse of useful facts. Almost every lady spends many
dollars every year for cosmetics, medicines, household articles, etc., which this book would save her.
